If you’re in charge of managing content on social media sites, you’ll probably be pretty busy. As well as working daily to create new types of posts, you need to maintain control over how often you post and what is written on each publication. A mistake published on social media sites could have no consequences at all, but it could also have disastrous effects, like your company becoming an online joke. It could even lead to disgruntled clients, if you make a mistake when advertising a special offer. To avoid committing this kind of mistake, we’ve put together a list of 8 apps that will help you to write better on your social networks!

2. Writefull

This web app is a good option for checking if you’re using specific term in the right way. Rather than working like a spell-checker, it takes whatever section of text you select and compares it with Google to see how it’s normally written in other articles or books. As well as listing and showing various variations of this piece of text, it can also translate it to the language of your choice. Find out more about Writefull on their page.

3. Easy Word Count

Easy Word Count is one of the most precise online word counting tools. The app works through on its own page and is free. You only need to copy and paste the text to see your results. You can edit the text in the box itself and it will keep updating the word count whilst you write.

Which performance-enhancing apps does your business use on a day to day basis?

Although lots of these apps can help you optimise your time, avoid unnecessary repetitions, and make menial tasks automatic, using too many apps can have the opposite effect. That’s why it’s important to consider which applications will be of most use to you. Some of the apps we’ve mentioned here won’t only help you to write well on social networks, they can also help you respond to a question or complaint in a clear and correct manner. Apps like Language tool can be really useful in these situations.
